Perfectly cloudless skies for this spectacle.  Had the whole family and one (kano) neighbor on the platform out back watching the once in our lifetime event.   Asked the children (elementary to 11th grade) if there was any discussion in school (either teachers or classmates) about the eclipse and nothing was ever brought up.    Perhaps I am the odd one here?

Our local high school actually had a telescope set up and lots of kids were there after 9 PM last night.

We watched from home and had fairly clear skies. I'm wondering if anyone else saw the blue light around the moon about an hour before totality. (Yes, I know blue moon doesn't mean a blue moon). But everyone with me saw these kind of electric blue lights around the eclipsing moon before it turned red.

some other things to look forward to this year

Halley's comet tear is a name i don't hear very often at all

it refers to the eta aquarid meteor showed  which will actually run something like mid april to late may every year.. this year should peak around the 6th.. it's when we pass through the debris from halley's tail

the orionid meteor shower later in the year is also caused by the same debris

 

halley itself won't be back till 61

I have had great success watching the Perseids and Geminids Meteor Showers in the states, but not so much in the PH.   Singapore is having a total solar eclipse on Dec. 26, 2019.
